i'm going to try that one next so i was reading the pattern last night - since i haven't tried it i'm not sure, but i think the "back loops" are the ones inside the circle.  the pattern said something about using the back loops to create a ribbed effect (which i don't think would happen if you used the loops on the outside of the circle) - anyhow, can't wait to hear how you do it and how your hat turns out!

finished two projects this weekend!  The garden scarf was a pain in the butt and I'm 100% sure I connected the flowers incorrectly, but I do like the end result:

The striped scarf was much easier!!!

thats pretty!! and non curling I note!!! I *think* my stitches are fairly loose, I'll keep plodding on, its not fair!!! it looks really nice - will it flatten by blocking does anyone know?Huh

i had the curling issue with another scarf i made . . . it did flatten considerably with blocking but had a tendency to re-curl.  as long as you lay it flat to dry every time you wash it (which you'd probably do anyhow) you should keep the curling in check.

i had a theory that my curling problem came from the first row of chain stitches being too tight and not necessarily the other single or double crochet rows being tight.  the first chain row curled and then everything kept curling from there.  can any more experienced crochet-ers tell me if i've got the right idea w/ that?

Hi everyone!!!
I stumbled upon this board a few weeks ago and you all have inspired me to try out a few crochet and sewing projects Smiley
Here's a hat I just finished . . . I couldn't find the yarn suggested in the book (seems like a few of you might have had the same problem), so I used Caron "Wintuk" which I found at Joann (probably too lightweight, but it seemed to come out OK anyhow).  The whole project went really quickly,  I think it took me just over an hour.
I've got one question for you all:  The book says to make the monkey eyes using french knots but I have no clue how to do that.  Does anyone know?  I used two x-es for eyes, but they make my monkey look dead so I'd like to learn to make french knots properly Smiley
